I inherited my mother’s fine blonde hair. Unfortunately this means my hair is very flat and is difficult to curl. When I came across and ad on Instagram for an effortless Curling iron I knew I had to have it. After some searching around I settled on one from Amazon.
This 2-in-1 Wand by Charminer is a straightener and curling iron in one. It claims that the twisted plates make curling effortless. Even with the spiral shape of the barrel this wand can be used as a straightener. This 2-in-1 sells for about 36$ on Amazon.
I’m gonna be honest, it took me forever to find the power button. There was not a single piece of instructions anywhere for this wand. I mean I get that most of them are self explanatory but at least the basics would have been nice. Once I got it on the temperature dial was easy enough to figure out and get to the right heat.
With the curled wand it was a bit awkward trying to straighten my hair at first. Once I got the hang of it though, this 2-in-1 worked fine as a straightener. I just have one complaint. I’m not sure if it was the teeth along the sides or the curled wand but my hair came out frizzy. I really had to brush my hair afterwards.
As to the curling part of this 2-in-1 I am more iffy. I still cannot get a curl out of it. I got some waves at the bottoms of my hair but no curls. I even tried different heats and times. The best I got was a very loose curl that fell almost instantly into a wave.
As of today this wand is not worth 36$ to me. I got better results from a basic straightener that came with instructions. I feel like if I played with it more I could figure this curling wand out. But I thought the whole selling point was to make curling effortless. So honestly I’m still very much on the side of skipping this beauty gadget.
